Larry Fitzgerald WR ARI 2 Months

Coach Bruce Arians estimates that Fitzgerald's left knee is currently about 70 percent, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Since suffering an MCL sprain in the knee in Week 11, Fitzgerald was subsequently inactive in back-to-back contests, before playing in the past three games. During the latter outings, he's merely existed as a PPR threat, with 15 catches (on 30 targets) for 97 yards and no touchdowns on the ledger. The subpar showings have also been aided by reserve quarterback play from the likes of Drew Stanton (knee) and Ryan Lindley, with the latter's disastrous Week 16 performance forcing Arians to turn to rookie Logan Thomas for the final game of the season in San Francisco. While his fantasy prospects aren't up to the standard set in 10 previous NFL campaigns, general manager Steve Keim mentioned Monday that Fitzgerald's enormous 2015 cap hit ($23.6 million) is built into their future finances, meaning the wide receiver likely isn't going anywhere once the Cardinals' season comes to a close.

Fitzgerald caught 4-of-11 targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 35-6 loss to the Seahawks.

Fitzgerald had trouble separating from the excellent Seattle defensive backs, and Ryan Lindley struggled badly with his accuracy. While his 11 targets led the team, Fitzgerald is far from a safe option for Week 17, with Arizona facing another defensive-minded division foe in San Francisco. On the bright side, there's perhaps some chance Drew Stanton (knee) will be able to play. As bad as he's looked at times this season, Stanton is easily preferred to Lindley.

Fitzgerald (knee) is listed as active Sunday against the Seahawks, the Cardinals' official site reports.

This season, Fitzgerald has been hamstrung by the Cardinals' quarterback situation, which is trotting out its fourth different signal caller, Ryan Lindley, to date. Though Fitzgerald has caught 11 passes over his last two games while being targeted 19 times, he's combined for just 64 receiving yards in that span. He's a hit-or-miss option this week against a rugged Seattle defense.

Fitzgerald (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against Seattle.

Fitzgerald's knee isn't a problem at this point, but his Week 16 outlook is still very bleak. Ryan Lindley will start for the Cardinals at quarterback, which is horrible news regardless of the opponent. But the Cardinals are playing the Seahawks, of course, making it especially hard to buy Fitzgerald as a fantasy option this week.

Fitzgerald (knee) practiced in full Thursday, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Fitzgerald fit in enough practice reps to be considered a full participant, clearing the way for usage during the current fantasy playoffs. With the report that Drew Stanton (knee) took part in a limited capacity Thursday, a wrench has been thrown into the QB mix in Arizona. The underwhelming Ryan Lindley is still expected to garner the start Sunday versus the Seahawks, but the potential of Stanton under center would boost Fitzgerald's prospects. Stay tuned as the weekend draws near.

Fitzgerald (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

Fitzgerald has received a fair share of targets this season, including 19 in the past two games, but the revolving door under center has led to an underwhelming campaign. With Ryan Lindley assuming QB duties following Drew Stanton's sprained knee, Fitzgerald is unlikely to break the malaise with two games remaining in the season.

Fitzgerald (knee) caught 7-of-10 targets for 30 yards in Thursday's 12-6 win over the Rams.

Fitzgerald had a long gain of 16 yards, and he had another reception for 27 yards wiped out by an offensive holding penalty. His knee didn't appear to be much of an issue, but the Cardinals' quarterback situation took yet another turn, with Drew Stanton exiting in the third quarter due to a knee injury of his own. While Ryan Lindley didn't look good in relief of Stanton, there isn't much reason to think that rookie Logan Thomas would have done any better. Regardless of who is under center, the Arizona passing game will face a stiff challenge in Week 16 against the Seahawks.

Fitzgerald (knee) is listed as active Thursday at St. Louis, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Toughing out his MCL sprain for a second game in a row, Fitzgerald will focus on upholding his career standard versus the Rams, against whom he's recorded 131 catches for 1,601 yards (12.2 YPC) and 16 touchdowns in 21 previous showdowns.

Fitzgerald (knee) is listed as probable for Thursday's game in St. Louis, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Fitzgerald was limited in practice all week, but caution will likely the rule the day for the remainder of the season after missing two games due to an MCL sprain. Nonetheless, he'll aim to exploit a Rams defense that he already crushed this year to the tune of a season-high nine receptions for 112 yards in Week 9.

Fitzgerald (knee) is listed as a limited participant for Tuesday's practice.

We're pretty comfortable the veteran is going to play Thursday for what's a key game against the suddenly surging Rams, so the bigger questions relate to just how healthy Fitzgerald truly is when he hits the field, and can he develop some better chemistry with Drew Stanton like he was showing previously with Carson Palmer.
